Weakened late into sixth behind Buyin Buyin on debut over 6f at Naas; with a tongue-tie fitted, showed the benefit of the run when producing an excellent winning effort in a maiden at Goodwood; may hold his own raised in class here.

Progressive in tongue tie on good (to soft), narrow Goodwood maiden win before giving the favourite a race in Round Tower (sweating, led); in theory should be better suited by this track from gate 1 and win; ground the imponderable (on pedigree and form).

11-2, lots of early speed when sixth at Naas (6f, good); this track should suit his style and he's probably got a decent draw; now tongue tied.

Form & Verdict

Beat Chandigah in C&D maiden on second outing; failed to make a major impact in the July Stakes over this trip at Newmarket; improved when going up to 7f for the Vintage Stakes at Goodwood; that said, it looked as if he was outstayed in taking third, and this return to 6f may not harm his chance.
